Happy Earth Day~

Today we celebrated Earth Day with a very sweet book...
The story helped us think of all the things we use in a day, 
where they come from, and how we can be conservative.
We loved the phrase...
Everything comes from something,
Nothing comes from nothing.
Just like paper comes from trees,
And glass comes from sand. 
Everyone thought of one way {with help} they could help take care of the Earth and wrote about it.
We also traced our 'helping hand'!

Next we were off to the kitchen for some earth painting.
I really like these Tempera Cakes since we can take out the colors we want to use by adding water~
 Looking at the globe, they drew a few continents onto a paper plate then painted.

After painting we made Earth Day cakes and sang Happy Earth Day to God~ {since He made the earth and all creation:}
 We broke out our new Geography book and worked on a couple of pages while singing our continents and oceans songs~
 After everything was dry, we combined it all into our final project~
that is now hanging in our school room.
Happy Earth Day everyone!!!
